North Carolina Hurricane Relief (2018)

In September 2018, Hurricane Florence struck the Carolinas leaving in its wake extensive damage.

Hurricane Hermine struck the Golf Coast on September 2, 2016.  In support of our neighbors to the south, we very quickly partnered with a church in Jasper, Texas to provide the following to local residents, through Walmart purchases:

Cleaning supplies-
Formula 409, Pine-Sol, bleach, Clorox wipes, scrub brushes, brooms and heavy duty shop towels

Household goods-
Paper plates, plastic cups, plastic cutlery, toilet paper, and electric skillets

Toiletries-
Soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, conditioner, baby wipes, antiperspirant, baby wipes, and feminine hygiene products

Then mid-October, we personally delivered boxes of clothing and additional supplies.

Previous: UNION MISSION

The holidays are a very busy and important time at Union Mission so they need a lot of community support and involvement. We've worked hand-in-hand with some wonderful humble servants. This is truly what God calls us to do… serve others in our community. We hope that through aidnow, we are able to show God’s love and make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.

PREVIOUS: JAPAN EARTHQUAKE (2011)

Early 2011 brought the news of the devastating earthquake in Japan and the opportunity to team up with our partners at Virginia Beach Public Schools to promote a city-wide concert at Princess Anne High School on April 11th. Over 400 attendees supported the event with monetary donations for relief efforts in Japan plus they also brought food donations for the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia. It was a night to reflect on the suffering in Japan and the needs of our own community. Thank you to all of the incredible high school musicians for donating their time to put on this benefit performance.

PREVIOUS: ALABAMA TORNADOES 2011

Weather continued to amaze us this Spring as tornados ripped through Alabama leveling complete neighborhoods and communities. We learned from our friends at Forefront Church in Virginia Beach that they planned to “Stuff the Truck” for victims and literally drive a mack truck filled with clothing, personal hygiene products and baby products right into the areas most affected. On May 12th, Board Members, Monica Laurendeau and Jessie Calevas shopped for those items and also contributed 10 boxes of jeans. Thanks Forefront for taking the initiative and making a difference. Here’s couple of pics of AidNow lending a hand.
